I’ve been lucky enough to write and publish a few stories that are deeply meaningful to me.
In doing so, I’ve been able to celebrate some ideas in a way that I believe makes the kids who read them curious, empathetic, and maybe most importantly … feel equipped to bring about change in the world.
Dream Village, Where Kids Build Better Tomorrows
My dream. My side hustle. It’s a modest endeavor but on a day like today it really lifts my spirits.
I want to thank the amazing Story Time with Mr. Limata for featuring Today’s the Day this week, of all weeks, when covering the topic of childhood friendship. The story covers bullying too (fits the times) and also pediatric cancer.
It’s more than a true story, too. It’s more than one true story.
It’s three. Interwoven. That was my contribution. Bringing the stories together.
In some ways this is my favorite story.
Because it brings together the lives of three girls who I think the world of. I want to thank Erin QuinnLeena Patel for letting me write a story about their girls.
And I want to thank Reshma Shah for allowing me to tell a story of this amazing little girl who changed my life. Our family’s lives.
#iamgrateful and #iamthankful for being a part of this. I am also just ridiculously moved right now.
And thanks Mr Limata. Udabes.
